feb 24 2015
best news of the day?  the water is not frozen-- but i don't think i have ever had such cold water out of the faucets...-- it is more like italian ice... 
***
...i have read up on why the hot water freezes first, and did not understand a word.-i feel very sorry for people who have to work 8 hours in this temp for minimum wage-- i would set congress out in it in a heartbeat...- bet they'd raise the minimum wage then.. i have always known i am dependent on the man who collects our trash-- i feel like today i should  run along behind the truck and give him some hot coffee... immagine jumping up on the truck-- holding on with one hand while the truck moves to the next house creating a worse wind chill in the breeze.  awful !!
********
and then there is the sidewalk problem-- some kid just got hit trying to get home from school...   there are no sidewalks in alot of places... i heard some mayor say they tried to clear sidewalks of the places where  kids walked home from  school-- apparently they missed one
what is the big hang up about 180 school days anyway..  time to decide a few computer  days would be better...  as a matter of fact... didn't some harvard student prepare an entire curriculum on disks?kindergarden  thru 12th grade..
time to make use of that...
*************
 i think sheila is driving north  - 5 dogs in her RV- eithre starting or arriving tomorrow.  that is a worry - when a simple flat tire could be life threatening.
 they say it will warm up tomorrow-- to 17 degrees...  whoopie....

and   traci adams is arriving tomorrow night- she will be a great help to  gracie
 who is doing overtime-- big time--  being a nurse , grace sleeps whenever possible for however long-  you learn that when you go to med school- i swear my husband  could sleep leaning against a wall.,  and if he had an early plane to catch he would guarentee to be up at 3am  without an alarm--it took me years to figure out how he did it...he adjusted his waking by the time and amount of water he drank before going to bed... it worked.
********
so back to the water topic.... i heard on the news how someone in Britain has discovered the fluoridation of water may help tooth decay but also contributes to obesity..  I KNEW THERE WAS A REASON !!!---- for you  newcommers, i am from newburgh new york which was teh test case for flouride in the water-- i spent my grade school years chewing on wax and spitting in little bottles-- when kingston new york was the control city...i had too much  spitting and not enough spelling --  and now i eat too much... 70 years later they tell me !!  it is not the cereal and whipped cream... it is the flouride in the water...
*******
yesterday with great effort  anne got my  annenberg year end report cleaned up and we sent it. -----in one paper alone i had spelled bentley 6 different ways...anne fixed that    ---.so it went...3 documents attached to an email...   with hopes...

then  with mark's camera help, she and i sent off a quick email to  the purina person with the photo of wanda and purple balloon with bentley.. let me try and past it here...

 did it work??  are we entering a new phase of my  tech capabilities-- a photo i the daily doggie???

the purple balloon served 2 purposes.. finding her in the deep snow-- and deflecting the hawk-- which has been eating one chicken a day...-- 

my tech capabilities are not of my own making... i got 2  text messages yesterday on my phone-- one from megan- sent yesterday and one from earlene saying she was coming to pick up chaos-- and that was 3 days ago.
and this is the phone i carefully carry with me when plowing so i can call for help if i get stuck????? 
i know it has stopped talking to my car...
megan thinks i should buy another -- simpler one-- maybe with a rotary dial...
*********
the chickens - by the way-- are starting to lay-- big time-- so spring is here-
it is amazing-- mother nature gets them fired up for spring .. they're layin' eggs now just like they used to-- it has to do with teh legnth of day-- i don't know how that is working when the snow is so high around their coop that they can's see the light of day
but mommy nature wins over jack frost...

HI CARLENE,
 
BEFORE ARRIVING HOME YESTERDAY WITH CHAOS, WE TOOK HER FOR A 30 MINUTE WALK OUTSIDE OUR LOCAL MALL.  WE WERE STOPPED BY TWO PEOPLE IN CARS; ONE ASKED IF HE COULD TAKE HER PICTURE BECAUSE SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL (OF COURSE, I ALREADY KNEW THAT).  THE OTHER CAR WANTED THEIR 3 YEAR OLD SON SEE A DALMATION UP CLOSE.  WHEN I TOLD HIM SHE WAS A GREAT DANE, HE SAID HE KNEW THAT BUT DIDN'T WANT TO DISAPPOINT HIS SON WHO LOVES DALMATIONS.
 
WE TOOK HER FOR A GOOD 30 MINUTE TROT AROUND THE MALL AGAIN THIS MORNING.  AT THIS TIME, SHE IS VERY CONTENTED SLEEPING ON THE SOFA.

  1. Always love starting my day with the online Doggie Daily. It gives me a nice place to go before I read about what's happening in the REST of the world.

    The picture isn't showing up for me (I have a rectangle with a blue question mark inside) but Mark posted the photo on the comments at SDP. Here's the link:
    Bentley and Wanda with her purple balloon~~~Mark




    Thank you Carlene and the staff and volunteers at SDP for
    all you do to make the world a better place.
